    Default Washer Problem AGAIN

    Hi
    About 3 months ago i had a problem with my washers.
    They werent "squirting" water i could here the pump running but no water coming out of jets.
    I took to my local Vaux as i still had warranty. They told me that the filter in the pump was blocked.
    Now i have exactly the same problem. Just wondering if any one else has had this problem.
    And is there a How 2 on it...

    Thankz Folks

    the filter is at the bottom of the bottle and is also the seal for the pump,when you pull the pump out you will see a black rubber thing left in the hole,that is the filter/seal

    i had this problem and traced it back to the one way valves that are located on the elbows that are attached to the pump , inside you will see a spring and a little ball in there, i prised the spring out and the ball then reatched them and put new one way valves in further up the pipe, got the parts from halford for a few pound and has worked like new since , if the filter is clean like mine then check the elbows mate, just need to take inner arch off to get to the water bottle and pump
